Wedding in Southern New Hampshire or Maine?

Does anyone have any good advice for this? I am looking for a place that is inexpensive but pretty, and that lets us bring in our own food (we were thinking Moe's sandwiches and Flatbread pizza from Portsmouth!). Anyone?

    I would give a call to parks and rec departments and see if they have any spaces available. Ive been to weddings in parks in other cities, maybe that can work.

      my cousin had her wedding outdoors near rye...in a rose garden. she was able to bring in her own food and catered a clam bake. i'll have to find the location for you.

        I think this was the reception area....

        Rye Harbor State Park Pavilion and Group Use Area
        Rye Harbor State Park - Off Route 1A, Rye NH 03870; 603-436-1552
        With scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Isles of Shoals, and Rye Harbor (also called Ragged Neck), this park is a beautiful location for a wedding, corporate event, or family reunion. Groups of up to 125 people can be accommodated. Amenities include fishing, flush toilets, and picnicking.
        Pavilion - Capacity: 40; Fee: $300.00. Day Use Area - Capacity: 120; Fee: $600.00.

        And the ceremony was nearby on a brick covered area that was lined with roses.

        There is also a very cute stone church in the area...but it's very small and maybe holds 50 people. If you want the name, I'll search for it.
